Peter I am doff with these things, please explain what you mean... SorryPeter Connan wrote:You probably need to set the system up to allow for 60-70% bump stop compression to be on the safe side.
Both in terms of sump and shock mounts.
Update. I have been driving at as is for the past day or three and it is way better on the new springs. Slight bump steer issue's, but that is due to a fairly big draglink angle. Hope to sort most of that problem out by turning the ball joint section of the steering box pitman arm around, and changing the angle of the ball joint to suite the pitman on the diff. By doing that I bring the draglink link down by 110mm on the steering box side and end up with only 30-40mm draglink angle.
Spent four hours yesterday just cleaning off all the stuff we welded on to take the coil springs, on the driver side. Can't believe how I mess myself up by doing jobs too well.
The next week or so will just be fine tuning and cleaning up all the loose ends on the front end, maybe even getting the bullbar back on as well. I may even have to sort a rockslider out as part of the exercise so that my wife can get into the car .. I did the driver side a while back and wanted to make sure I was happy with the design, then the SFA started happening and I was glad I waited as things could change.
My wife manages to get into the driver side on the new rockslider, but the left side is too close to the body and makes it very difficult for her to get up to a 600mm floor level when the step is too small. I think I also need handles installed somewhere, that should stop people using my doors and snorkel to pull themselves up into the car.
I think by Feb I should be ready to start phase two on the rear end and the rest of the drive train.
